Photographing the Night Sky - Nikon Learn & Explore...

Night transforms an ordinary scene into something magical and exciting, it's my favorite time to make dramatic pictures! You can capture stars as pinpoints of light, or photograph the stars as beautiful circular trails. Essentially, you'll need your  camera, tripod, and a cable release to photograph the night sky. I like to use the interval timer option in my Nikon camera for star trails, and I always carry a compass. Want to know more? Here are some tips and techniques about photographing the night sky on the Nikon Learn & Explore site by fellow photographer Harold Davis and myself.  I hope you enjoy it! ~ Deb
